The Whole Predators Cast Revealed
Posted 10.07.09 by Ryan
Adrien Brody has been cast in Predators, the sequel to Predator being written and produced by Robert Rodriguez and directed by Nimrod Antal, and THR reports he won't be alone.
Joining Brody will be Alice Braga (I Am Legend), Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Walton Goggins (The Shield), UFC fighter Oleg Taktarov, and Danny Trejo, who was the first Predators cast member to be revealed. Topher Grace is also in negotiations to join the cast.
According to a recent script review, Brody will play Royce, a man kidnapped and brought to a Predator planet to join an international gang of ruthless criminals and thugs who must survive being hunted by a group of Predators. Trejo will play Cuchillo, a Mexican enforcer with "twin Uzis strapped to his back." Braga will play the sniper-toting, French-speaking Isabelle, while Taktarov will play former Russian special ops agent Nikolai. Goggins will play Stans, a former San Quintin prisoner who is the "loose cannon" of the group, and Ali will play Mombasa, a member of the African Sierra Leone death squad who is not afraid to die. Should Grace officially join the cast, he will play Edwin, an unassuming accountant-type who is one of the FBI's most wanted serial killers. The only role left to cast is Hanzo, a Japanese yakuza enforcer.
Predators begins shooting next month in Hawaii, with a scheduled release date of opens July 9, 2010.
